To meet strong demand and cut waiting times, Porsche is already taking the necessary measures to boost series production even before actually starting it.

Porsche has already collected more than 20,000 pre-orders for its first electric sports vehicle with four doors, the prototype of which was introduced in 2015.

Despite the final design not being revealed yet, Porsche says more than 20,000 people have already placed an order for a Taycan, which requires a down payment of €2,500 in Europe (around $2,800). Harbinger Porsche Taycan was a concept electric vehicle, Porsche E Mission, and the company needed four years to prepare it for serial production. As for the market launch, Porsche mentions it will have the highly anticipated EV on sale before the end of the year. Therefore, we are increasing our production capacity.

It is no secret though that Porsche's first purely electric auto can accelerate to 100 kph in "significantly less than 3.5 seconds" and to 200 kph in less than twelve seconds thanks to two electric machines with a system output of more than 440 kW. Porsche has said before that more than 310 miles of driving should be possible on a full charge, though that's on the European NEDC cycle.

Porsche plans to offer two sizes of battery with the Taycan, though initially it will only be selling the larger version. "The Taycan will be the most sporty and most technically advanced vehicle in its segment - a true Porsche", he said. In the interview, he also reaffirmed that interest is well above what was initially expected and more so before anybody has seen the electric vehicle. The smaller, entry-level auto "will start at under 100,000 euro" ($113k) according to Blume.
